Heather Dubrow Defends Husband Against Bethenny Frankel, Says Terry Dubrow Was ‘Just Joking’

Heather Dubrow is stepping in to defend her husband after Bethenny Frankel slammed Dr. Terry Dubrow on Twitter for the comments he made about the Real Housewives of New York star during his Monday night appearance on Watch What Happens Live. Heather says her husband was just joking.

According to Bravo’s The Daily Dish, the Real Housewives of Orange County‘s Heather Dubrow felt the need to step in and defend her husband after Bethenny took to Twitter to slam Terry, telling the RHONY star that her husband meant no ill will, as it was all in jest.

Bethenny Frankel was a bit upset, to say the least, at Terry Dubrow’s response to a question posed to him while he was a guest on Monday’s Watch What Happens Live. When Andy Cohen asked Dr. Dubrow what Housewife from another city would he like to have on Botched, a show about plastic surgery gone wrong, Terry replies with something Frankel did not think was funny.

“I would put on Bethenny … and just feed her a little bit, right, because I think she’s a — she looks amazingly pretty, natural, but she’s a little skinny girl for me.”

When Andy points out that some could argue that his wife, Heather, is the same size as Bethenny, Terry responds, “I think my wife has a little more muscularity going on.”

According to Radar Online, Bethenny Frankel immediately took to Twitter to take shots at Terry, asking “Who is dr dubrow and what happened? [sic]”

The Real Housewives of New York star then took things a little further, questioning Dr. Dubrow’s motives in making his “joke.”

Terry Dubrow’s unflattering comments come at an especially bad time for the RHONY star. As Radar Online reports, Bethenny Frankel has faced an enormous amount of criticism lately about her weight. She even went so far to hop on a scale during a recent appearance on Access Hollywood in an effort to quiet her critics, apparently to no avail, given Dubrow’s “joke” about her body.

Many Twitter fans questioned the response from Heather Dubrow that Terry was only joking by pointing out Bethenny has taken a lot of heat recently from the media in regards to her weight, and asking when is making fun of someone’s weight ever funny. Those fans have yet to receive a response from Mrs. Dubrow.

Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen airs Sunday-Thursdays at 11 p.m. ET on Bravo.
